Repeated dreams often mean our subconscious is trying to tell us something, right?
My dreams are typically vivid and detailed, and I remember most of them. Of course I’ve had dreams that are complete nonsense. But there are times when I’m in the dream and I just know it’s significant in one way or another.
Dream 1: For the past few years, I have this dream where I’m back in high school, which is weird since I never dream about college or law school (and law school was a 3 yr period of constant high stress). Anyway, I have to go to either English or Math class. I never talk to any of my teachers or classmates. When I get to class, I sit in my seat and then realize there’s a big paper due and I didn’t do it. All I can think about is: why didn’t I just look at the syllabus? Why am I unprepared?
A slight variation of this dream is that I’m registered for classes and there’s 1 class I keep forgetting to go to. When the realization hits me, no matter what I do, I know I’m not going to make it to class on time.Of course, there’s also a big assignment due. I don’t know how I’m going to complete it when I’ve missed almost the entire semester of that class.
In reality, this scenario didn’t happen. If I ever needed more time for an assignment, I simply asked a teacher for an extension, which was rare. I find it weird that I keep having this dream.
Dream 2: This dream repeats almost as often as the other one. I have to go somewhere – usually to either NY or FL – and I have too much to pack. There’s stuff – clothes, toiletries, and etc. everywhere. I don’t know how I’m going to fit everything in the suitcase and still catch my flight.
Slight variations of this dream: I can get everything to fit, and I can close the zipper on my suitcase; or, I arrive at the airport but I can’t find my flight information. Sometimes I make it to my destination, and other times I wake up before I do.
In reality, these situations haven’t happened either. I mean, sure, I’ve packed more than I needed for vacation or something, but it never stressed or worried me. I’ve also never missed a flight.
Have you had any dreams repeat lately? Have you had a dream(s) similar to mine? If so, what did it mean for you?
